Qurbani/Slaughter/Sacrifice

Q:

Aslam o alykum! I have question related to qurbani that each year one of my friend sends me a goat for qurbani as a gift although I can afford. Is it permissible for me to use it for qurbani or i have to buy my own? Will it be consider Qurbani from my behalf or i have to buy my own animal?

A:

Waalaykum Salaam, 
 
To obtain an answer for your Query, I got in touch with the Office of Sayyid Sistani and they said:
"You can certainly use the goat for your Qurbani, unless it was your friend's "Nadhr" that you consume the meat and he specifically mentioned it".
